Pedestrian Accidents

Topeka Pedestrian Accidents Attorney

Let Us Help You Recover Compensation

Pedestrians face a lot of danger, particularly in areas with poor lighting. In 2015, 5,376 pedestrians and 818 bicyclists were killed in crashes with motor vehicles, according to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Another 70,000 pedestrians were injured in crashes in 2015. As people on foot only have a split second to respond to any potential threat from an oncoming vehicle, they are at a severe disadvantage. Most states put the onus on the driver to pay attention to possible obstacles in the road. When they fail to do this, the consequences can be deadly.

Liability

Most people have heard the phrase “pedestrians have the right of way.” This rule, however, usually applies in crosswalks. Likewise, in busy intersections, people must wait for the walking sign to flash before proceeding across the street. In these circumstances, drivers must yield to pedestrians in the crosswalks. In most cases, drivers must also take care whenever pedestrians cross the street in spots with no crosswalks; however, if a pedestrian crosses the street illegally—or jaywalks—he or she might be held partially liable for any injuries that occur if a driver doesn’t see them. In fact, if you attempt to sue a driver for your injuries as a pedestrian, the driver’s attorney might try to blame the accident on your actions, whether it was jaywalking, impeding the flow of traffic, violating posted traffic signs, or running into the street.

The best way to determine the strength of your position as a plaintiff is to talk to a skilled Topeka personal injury attorney about your case. We can help you analyze the case on its individual merits and estimate the damages you might recover for your injuries.

We Can Help You File a Claim

If you’ve been injured by a negligent driver, it is wise to file a claim for compensation as soon as possible.

Our attorneys have the experience and knowledge of traffic and personal injury law it takes to pursue this type of case successfully.
